F in a n c ia l H ig h lig h ts
The M alaysian economy registered a
growth of 4.7% (Q 2 2008: 6.7% ) in the
third quarter of year 2008. Growth in the
manufacturing sector, however, moderated
1.8% (Q 2 2008: 5.6% ), partly due to
declining global demand for electrical
and electronics (E&E) products.
Prices still remained high, especially for
raw materials for the bread and bakery
industry where flour prices had doubled.
However, bakery products are under price
control and approved price increase
moved marginally only toward the end of
2007. Hence cost cutting measures
were instituted to remain competitive in
the market. Despite these efforts, the
turnover did not perform to expectations.
In the face of this challenging business
environment, the Group did not perform
as well as what was forecasted.
For the financial year under review the
G roup achieved revenue growth
amounting to RM 639 million. Despite this
commendable effort, the Group registered
a slightly higher loss after taxation and
minorityinterest of RM 21 million compared
to the previous year’s loss. A favourable
increasing trend in turnover is expected
to follow through into the next quarter.
The Group managed to turnaround in the
fourth quarter of financial year 2008 due
to a turnaround in sales growth in dailyfresh
bakery products and cost reduction
measures.
D ivid e n d
The Board of Directors is not recommending
any dividend for the financial year under
review.
O u tlo o k a n d P ro sp e c ts
The Group will continue to focus on its
core business in the light of the prospect
arising from the consolidation of the
bakery market. In addition, the expected
downward trend of major material cost in
the first quarter of financial year 2009
and the continuous cost reduction
measures undertaken by the Group will
translate into better results in the coming
financial year. The Group is also exploring
smart partnerships in some business
prospects that will enhance sales and
distribution.
The Board of Directors is optimistic
that with the commitment to improve
efficiencies in operations, cost cutting
measures and marketing and promotion,
the aspiration to be one of the nation’s
leading players in the consumer food
market can be achieved.
A p p re c ia tio n
O n behalf of the Board of Directors,
I would like to express my sincere
appreciation to our valued customers for
their continuous support and our business
partners, bankers, regulatory authorities
for their trust, confidence and cooperation
given to us.
To my fellow directors, management and
staff, I would like to express my gratitude
and appreciation for their hard work,
dedication and commitment.
Last but not least, sincere thanks to all
valued shareholders for your continued
support and confidence in Silver Bird
Group Bhd.

Despite the challenging conditions for financial year
ended 31 October 2008, the Group continued to show
improved results. This was achieved notwithstanding
the major increases in raw materials prices.
F in a n c ia l P e rfo rm a n c e
Revenue had increased to RM 638 million largely due
to a turnaround in sales growth in daily fresh bakery
products and the continuous cost cutting and
rationalisation of the Consumer Food Division operations
in M alaysia and Singapore. However, the loss after
taxation of RM 21 million was higher compared with
loss after taxation of RM 16 million in the previous year.
The write back of impairment loss in 2007 contributed
to the lower losses.
We are continuously performing research and
development for new products and exploring other
related business segment. The Company’s margin
was hit by worldwide high flour price during
beginning of 2008 with increase in selling price
lagging behind. The Government had subsequently
approved the subsidy on white bread which
commences in the end Q 2 2008.

In M ay2008, the Companyentered into a Strategic
Alliance Agreement with Lembaga Tabung Haji to
produce and market a range of bakery and
confectionary products.
The M ultiCom Division on the other hand registered
a slower growth rate but continued to make profit
contributions to the Group.
During the financial year, the Group had raised
RM 51.8 million through a rights issue with free
warrants exercise. The proceeds were used as
the Group’s working capital.
S in g a p o re ’ s O p e ra tio n
In this segment, we had managed to turnaround
Singapore’s operation after the completion of the
rationalisation of this operation. We will remain
committed to this market and continue to seek
innovative ways to expand our reach.
We had managed to renew the supply contract
to manufacture house brand confectioneryproducts
for a leading retail chain in Singapore.
F u tu re P ro sp e c ts
With the expected downward trend of major
material costs and the various cost reduction
initiatives undertaken bythe Group, this will translate
into positive results for the forthcoming quarters.
The M alaysian economy could still be headed for
a contraction despite the announcement of the
second stimulus package of RM 60 billion. A growth
of 3.5% is forecasted for year 2009 and GDP
growth is expected to be in the range of -1.0%
to 1.0% .
We will continue to structure our approach to
pursue growth, maintaining the G roup’s
competitiveness and ensuring the long term
growth and prospects by expanding into similar
and/or complementary businesses whenever
opportunities arise. We are cautious over the
uncertainties of fluctuation in the raw material prices
which may impact the Company’s performance
for the next financial year. Barring any unforseen
circumstances, the Board is confident of achieving
a much better set of results in 2009.
A c k n o wle d g e m e n ts
O n behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like
to place on record our sincere gratitude and
appreciation to the management team and all
employees for their hard work and commitment
throughout the challenging financial year.
I would also like to express mydeepest appreciation
to all our valuable customers, business partners,
bankers, shareholders and regulatory authorities
for their continued support and trust in the Group.

Commissioner for O aths
R e p o rt o n th e F in a n c ia l S ta te m e n ts
We have audited the financial statements of Silver Bird Group Berhad, which comprise the balance sheets as at 31 O ctober 2008
of the Group and of the Company, and the income statements, statements of changes in equity and cash flow statements of
the Group and of the Company for the financial year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other
explanatory notes, as set out on pages 37 to 73.
Directors’ Responsibility for the Financial Statements
The directors of the Company are responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance
with Financial Reporting Standards and the Companies Act 1965 in M alaysia. This responsibility includes designing, implementing
and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material
misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies, and making accounting
estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.
Auditors’ Responsibility
O ur responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in
accordance with approved standards on auditing in M alaysia. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements
and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free from material
misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.
The procedures selected depend on our judgement, including the assessment of risks of material misstatement of the financial
statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to the
Company’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate
in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control.
An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting
estimates made by the directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
Opinion
In our opinion, the financial statements have been properly drawn up in accordance with Financial Reporting Standards and the
Companies Act 1965 in M alaysia so as to give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Group and of the Company as of
31 O ctober 2008 and of their financial performance and cash flows for the financial year then ended.
R e p o rt o n O th e r L e g a l a n d R e g u la to ry R e q u ire m e n ts
In accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 1965 in M alaysia, we also report the following:-
(a) In our opinion, the accounting and other records and the registers required by the Act to be kept by the Company and its
subsidiaries of which we have acted as auditors have been properly kept in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
(b) We have considered the financial statements and the auditors’ reports of the subsidiary of which we have not acted as auditors,
which is indicated in Note 6 to the financial statements.
(c) We are satisfied that the financial statements of the subsidiaries that have been consolidated with the Company’s financial
statements are in form and content appropriate and proper for the purposes of the preparation of the financial statements
of the Group and we have received satisfactory information and explanations required by us for those purposes.
(d) The audit reports on the financial statements of the subsidiaries did not contain any qualification or any adverse comment
made under Section 174(3) of the Act.
O th e r M a tte rs
This report is made solely to the members of the Company, as a body, in accordance with Section 174 of the Companies Act
1965 in M alaysia and for no other purpose. We do not assume responsibility to any other person for the content of this report.

The annexed notes form an integral part of these financial statements.
for the financial year ended 31 O ctober 2008
1 . G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
The Company is a public company limited by shares and is incorporated under the Companies Act 1965 in M alaysia. The
domicile of the Company is M alaysia. The registered office and principal place of business is at Lot 72, Persiaran Jubli Perak,
Seksyen 21, 40300 Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan.
The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Directors in accordance with a resolution of the directors
dated 23 February 2009.
2 . P R I N C I P A L A C T I VI T I E S
The Company is principally engaged in the business of investment holding. The principal activities of the subsidiaries are set
out in Note 6 to the financial statements. There have been no significant changes in the nature of these activities during the
financial year.
3 . F I N A N C I A L R I S K M A N A G E M E N T P O L I C I E S
The Group’s financial risk management policy seeks to ensure that adequate financial resources are available for the
development of the Group’s business whilst managing its market, credit, liquidity and cash flow risks. The Group operates
within clearly defined guidelines that are established by the Audit Committee and approved by the Board and the policies in
respect of the major areas of treasury activity are as follows:-
  a ) M a rk e t R isk
  i) F o re ig n C u rre n c y R isk
The Group is exposed to foreign exchange risk on sales and purchases that are denominated in foreign currencies.
It manages its foreign exchange exposure by a policy of matching as far as possible receipts and payments in each
individual currency.
Surpluses of convertible currencies are either retained in foreign currency or sold for Ringgit M alaysia. The Group’s
foreign currency transactions and balances are substantially denominated in Singapore Dollar and United States
(“US”) Dollar.
Foreign exchange risk is monitored closely and managed to an acceptable level.
  ii) I n te re st R a te R isk
The Group obtains financing through bank borrowings. Its policy is to obtain the most favourable interest rates available.
Surplus funds are placed with licensed financial institutions at the most favourable interest rates.
  iii) P ric e R isk
The Group does not have any quoted investments and hence is not exposed to price risk.
  b ) C re d it R isk
The Group’s exposure to credit risk, or the risk of counterparties defaulting, arises mainly from receivables. The
maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by the total carrying amount of these financial assets in the balance
sheet reduced by the effects of any netting arrangements with counterparties.
The Group does not have any major concentration of credit risk related to any individual customer or counterparty.
The Group manages its exposure to credit risk by investing its cash assets safely and profitably, and by the application
of credit approvals, credit limits and monitoring procedures on an ongoing basis.
  c ) L iq u id ity a n d C a sh F lo w R isk
The Group’s exposure to liquidity and cash flow risks arises mainly from general funding and business activities.
It practises prudent liquidity risk management by maintaining sufficient cash balances and the availability of funding
through certain committed credit facilities.

  a ) C ritic a l A c c o u n tin g E stim a te s A n d J u d g e m e n ts
Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated by the directors and management and are based on historical
experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the
circumstances. The estimates and judgements that affect the application of the Group’s accounting policies and
disclosures, and have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets, liabilities,
income and expenses are discussed below:-
(i) Depreciation of Property, Plant and Equipment
The estimates for the residual values, useful lives and related depreciation charges for the property, plant and
equipment are based on commercial and production factors which could change significantly as a result of
technical innovations and competitors’ actions in response to the market conditions.
The Group anticipates that the residual values of its plant and equipment will be insignificant. As a result, residual
values are not being taken into consideration for the computation of the depreciable amount.
Changes in the expected level of usage and technological development could impact the economic useful lives and
the residual values of these assets, therefore future depreciation charges could be revised.
(ii) Income Taxes
There are certain transactions and computations for which the ultimate tax determination is uncertain during the
ordinary course of business. The Group recognises tax liabilities based on estimates of whether additional taxes will
be due. Where the final outcome of these matters is different from the amounts that were initially recognised, such
difference will impact the income tax and deferred tax provisions in the period in which such determination is made.
(iii) Impairment of Assets
When the recoverable amount of an asset is determined based on the estimate of the value-in-use of the cash-
generating unit to which the asset is allocated, the management is required to make an estimate of the expected
future cash flows from the cash-generating unit and also to apply a suitable discount rate in order to determine the
present value of those cash flows.
(iv) Allowance for Doubtful Debts of Receivables
The Group makes allowance for doubtful debts based on an assessment of the recoverability of receivables. Allowances
are applied to receivables where events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amounts may not
be recoverable. M anagement specifically analyses historical bad debt, customer concentrations, customer
creditworthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment terms when making a judgement to
evaluate the adequacy of the allowance for doubtful debts of receivables. Where the expectation is different from
the original estimate, such difference will impact the carrying value of receivables.
(v) Allowance for Inventories
Reviews are made periodically by management on damaged, obsolete and slow-moving inventories. These reviews
require judgement and estimates.
Possible changes in these estimates could result in revisions to the valuation of inventories.

(vi) Fair Value Estimates for Certain Financial Assets and Liabilities
The Group carries certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value, which require extensive use of accounting
estimates and judgement. While significant components of fair value measurement were determined using verifiable
objective evidence, the amount of changes in fair value would differ if the Group uses different valuation
methodologies. Any changes in fair value of these assets and liabilities would affect profit and equity.
  b ) F in a n c ia l I n stru m e n ts
Financial instruments are recognised in the balance sheet when the Group has become a party to the contractual
provisions of the instruments.
Financial instruments are classified as liabilities or equity in accordance with the substance of the contractual
arrangement. Interest, dividends, gains and losses relating to financial instruments classified as a liability are reported as
an expense or income. Distributions to holders of financial instruments classified as equity are charged directly to equity.
Financial instruments are offset when the Group has a legally enforceable right to offset and intends to settle either on
a net basis or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously.
Financial instruments recognised in the balance sheet are disclosed in the individual policy statement associated with
each item.
  c ) F u n c tio n a l a n d F o re ig n C u rre n c y
(i) Functional and Presentation Currency
The functional currency of the Group and each of the Group’s entity is measured using the currency of the primary
economic environment in which the Company or that entity operates.
The consolidated financial statements are presented in Ringgit M alaysia (“RM ”) which is the Company’s functional
and presentation currency.
(ii) Transactions and Balances
Transactions in foreign currency are converted into the respective functional currencies on initial recognition, using
the exchange rates approximating those ruling at the transaction dates. M onetary assets and liabilities at the
balance sheet date are translated at the rates ruling as of that date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities are
translated using exchange rates that existed when the values were determined. All exchange differences are taken
to the income statement.
  d ) B a sis o f C o n so lid a tio n
The consolidated financial statements incorporate the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries made
up to 31 O ctober 2008.
A subsidiary is defined as an enterprise in which the Company has the power, directly or indirectly, to exercise control
over the financial and operating policies so as to obtain benefits from its activities.
The acquisition method is used to consolidate the results of some of the subsidiaries identified in Note 6 to the financial
statements. Under this method, the results of the subsidiaries acquired or disposed of during the financial year are
included in the consolidated income statement from the date of acquisition or up to the date of disposal.
For subsidiaries which were acquired by way of the issue of shares as identified in Note 6 to the financial statements,
and which satisfy the requirements of FRS 122 - Business Combinations, the merger method is used to consolidate the
results of these subsidiaries. The difference between the acquisition cost and the nominal value of the share capital and
reserves of the subsidiaries is taken to the merger reserve.
Intragroup transactions, balances and unrealised gains on transactions are eliminated; unrealised losses are also
eliminated unless cost cannot be recovered. Where necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements of
subsidiaries to ensure consistency of accounting policies with those of the Group.
M inority interest is measured at the minorities’ share of the post acquisition fair values of the identifiable assets and
liabilities of the acquired subsidiary. Separate disclosure is made for minority interest.

  e ) G o o d will o n C o n so lid a tio n
Goodwill on consolidation represents the excess of the fair value of the purchase consideration over the Group’s share
of the fair values of the identifiable net assets of the subsidiaries at the date of acquisition.
Goodwill is measured at cost less accumulated impairment losses, if any. The carrying value of goodwill is reviewed for
impairment annually. The impairment value of goodwill is recognised immediately in the consolidated income statement.
An impairment loss recognised for goodwill is not reversed in a subsequent period.
If, after reassessment, the Group’s interest in the fair values of the identifiable net assets of the subsidiaries exceeds the
cost of the business combinations, the excess is recognised immediately in the consolidated income statement.
  f) I n ve stm e n ts in S u b sid ia rie s
Investments in subsidiaries are stated at cost in the balance sheet of the Company, and are reviewed for impairment at
the end of the financial year if events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying values maynot be recoverable.
O n the disposal of the investments in subsidiaries, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying
amount of the investments is taken to the income statement.
  g ) I n ve stm e n ts
Investments are held on a long-term basis and are stated at cost. Allowance for diminution in value is only made if the
directors are of the opinion that the diminution is permanent.
  h ) P ro p e rty, P la n t a n d E q u ip m e n t
Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, if any.
Depreciation is calculated under the straight-line method to write off the cost of the assets over their estimated useful lives.
Depreciation of an asset does not cease when the asset becomes idle or is retired from active use unless the asset is
fully depreciated. The principal annual rates used for this purpose are:-
Plant and machinery 5% - 10%
Gallery 10%
M otor vehicles 20%
O ffice equipment, furniture, fittings, renovation, cutlery and crockery 10% - 20%
The depreciation method, useful life and residual values are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at each balance sheet
date to ensure that the amount, method and period of depreciation are consistent with previous estimates and the
expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits embodied in the items of the property, plant
and equipment.
An item of property, plant and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are
expected from its use. Any gain or loss arising from derecognition of the asset is included in the income statement in
the year the asset is derecognised.
  i) I m p a irm e n t o f A sse ts
The carrying amounts of assets, other than those to which FRS 136 - Impairment of Assets does not apply, are reviewed
at each balance sheet date for impairment when there is an indication that the assets might be impaired. Impairment is
measured by comparing the carrying values of the assets with their recoverable amounts. The recoverable amount of
the assets is the higher of the assets’ net selling price and their value-in-use, which is measured by reference to
discounted future cash flow.
An impairment loss is charged to the income statement immediately unless the asset is carried at its revalued amount.
Any impairment loss of a revalued asset is treated as a revaluation decrease to the extent of a previously recognised
revaluation surplus for the same asset.
In respect of assets other than goodwill, and when there is a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable
amount, a subsequent increase in the recoverable amount of an asset is treated as a reversal of the previous impairment
loss and is recognised to the extent of the carrying amount of the asset that would have been determined (net of
amortisation and depreciation) had no impairment loss been recognised. The reversal is recognised in the income
statement immediately, unless the asset is carried at its revalued amount. A reversal of an impairment loss on a revalued
asset is credited directly to the revaluation surplus. However, to the extent that an impairment loss on the same revalued
asset was previously recognised as an expense in the income statement, a reversal of that impairment loss is recognised
as income in the income statement.

The purchased trademark is stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and impairment losses, if any. The trademark
is amortised on a straight-line basis over a period of 10 years.
Trademarks are tested for impairment annually or more frequently when indicators of impairment are identified.
  k ) I n ve n to rie s
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined on the weighted average basis,
and includes all incidentals incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and condition.
In arriving at net realisable value, due allowance is made for all damaged, obsolete and slow-moving items.
  l R e c e iva b le s
Receivables are carried at anticipated realisable value. Bad debts are written off in the period in which they are identified.
An estimate is made for doubtful debts based on a review of all outstanding amounts at the balance sheet date.
  m ) P a ya b le s
Payables are stated at cost which is the fair value of the consideration to be paid in the future for goods and services
received.
  n ) A sse ts U n d e r H ire P u rc h a se
Plant and equipment acquired under hire purchase are capitalised in the financial statements and are depreciated in
accordance with the policy set out in Note 5(h) above. Each hire purchase payment is allocated between the liability and
finance charges so as to achieve a constant rate on the finance balance outstanding. Finance charges are allocated to
the income statement over the period of the respective hire purchase agreements.
  o ) I n c o m e Ta x e s
Income taxes for the year comprises current and deferred tax.
Current tax is the expected amount of income taxes payable in respect of the taxable profit for the year and is measured
using the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date.
Deferred tax is provided in full, using the liability method, on temporary differences arising between the tax bases of
assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the financial statements.
Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences other than those that arise from goodwill or
negative goodwill or from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction which is not a business combination
and at the time of the transaction, affects neither accounting profit nor taxable profit.
Deferred tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits
to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences,
unused tax losses and unused tax credits can be utilised.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period when the asset
is realised or the liability is settled, based on the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted at the balance
sheet date.
Deferred tax is recognised in the income statement, except when it arises from a transaction which is recognised directly
in equity, in which case the deferred tax is also charged or credited directly in equity, or when it arises from a business
combination that is an acquisition, in which case the deferred tax is included in the resulting goodwill or negative
goodwill. The carrying amounts of deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date and reduced to the
extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the deferred tax
assets to be utilised.
  p ) I n te re st-b e a rin g B o rro win g s
Interest-bearing borrowings are recorded at the amount of proceeds received, net of transaction costs.
All borrowing costs are charged to the income statement as expenses in the period in which they are incurred.

ICULS give the holders the right to convert the ICULS into ordinary shares of the Company at any time during the
conversion period. ICULS that are not converted by the holders at the expiry of the conversion period shall be mandatorily
converted into shares of the Company at the conversion price. As such, ICULS are recognised in the financial
statements based on the nominal value of the loan stocks and are classified as equity.
  s) Wa rra n ts
Warrants issued by the Company are initially recognised based on proceeds received and reflected in the financial
statements as warrants reserve. Upon the exercise of the warrants to subscribe for shares in the Company, the warrants
reserve will be transferred to the share premium account.
  t) P u rc h a se o f O wn S h a re s
When the share capital recognised as equity is bought by the Company under the share buy-back programme, the amount
of the consideration paid, including directly attributable costs, is recognised as a deduction from equity. Shares bought
that are not subsequently cancelled are classified as treasury shares and are presented as a deduction from total equity.
Where such shares are subsequently sold or reissued, any consideration received, net of any direct costs, is included
in shareholders’ equity.

A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events and whose existence will only be confirmed by
the occurrence of one or more uncertain future events not wholly within the control of the Group. It can also be a present
obligation arising from past events that is not recognised because it is not probable that an outflow of economic
resources will be required or the amount of obligation cannot be measured reliably.
A contingent liability is not recognised but is disclosed in the notes to the financial statements. When a change in the
probability of an outflow occurs so that the outflow is probable, it will then be recognised as a provision.
A contingent asset is a probable asset that arises from past events and whose existence will be confirmed only by the
occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain events not wholly within the control of the Company.

Fair value is defined as the amount at which the financial instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction
between knowledgeable willing parties in an arm’s length transaction, other than in a forced sale or liquidation.
The following methods and assumptions are used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments:
  a ) L o n g -Te rm B a n k L o a n s a n d B o n d s
The fair values of the long-term bank loans and bonds are determined by discounting the relevant cash flows using
current interest rates for similar types of instruments.

The carrying amounts approximated their fair values because of the short period to maturity of these instruments.

The fair values of hire purchase payables are determined by discounting the relevant cash flows using current interest
rates for similar types of instruments.
  d ) L o n g -Te rm L o a n to S u b sid ia rie s
The carrying amounts approximated their fair values as these instruments bear interest at variable rates.
  e ) L o n g -Te rm O th e r R e c e iva b le
The carrying amount approximated its fair value as this is a security deposit for a sale and leaseback transaction.
  f) C a sh A n d C a sh E q u iva le n ts A n d O th e r S h o rt-Te rm R e c e iva b le s/P a ya b le s
The carrying amounts approximated their fair values due to the relatively short-term maturity of these instruments.
The nominal amount and net fair value of financial instruments not recognised in the balance sheets of the Companyare as follows:

A portion of the plant and machinery which belonged to SBSB had been damaged as a result of a fire which occurred on
2 M arch 2008. The fire and police departments’ investigations in this incident are still ongoing. This incident did not have any
significant adverse effect on the results and financial position of the Group as the assets have been adequately covered by
the Group’s insurance policy.
The Group’s overall manufacturing output for bread has not been interrupted as existing capacity and other arrangements
could meet the Group’s production demand. The portions damaged are sufficiently covered by insurance to mitigate any
losses arising from the incident.
Consequently, the subsidiary has filed the insurance claim and the Group has received and accepted the offer letter for the
first settlement of RM 12.5 million subsequent to the balance sheet date.
5 0 . S I G N I F I C A N T E VE N T S U B S E Q U E N T T O T H E B A L A N C E S H E E T D AT E
Subsequent to the balance sheet date, the issued and paid-up share capital was increased from RM 157, 058, 717.50 to
RM 157, 090, 078.50 by way of the conversion of RM 42, 690 nominal value of 1% ICULS into 62, 722 ordinary shares of
RM 0.50 each, at a conversion price of RM 0.68 per new ordinary share.
All the new shares issued subsequent to the balance sheet date rank pari passu in all respects with the existing shares of
the Company.
